  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Sauce

    Trim and finely chop white portions of green onions. Thinly slice green portions of green onions. Keep white and green portions separate. In a mixing bowl, combine miso, soy sauce, sambal (to taste), mayonnaise, white portions of green onions, and 2 tsp. water. Pat tuna dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sprinkle both sides with sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere.

  2. 2

    Cook the Tuna

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add tuna to hot pan and cook until tuna reaches desired doneness, 1-2 minutes per side for medium-rare (some pink in the center). Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness. Remove to a plate. Wipe pan clean.

  3. 3

    Make Pancake Batter

    In another mixing bowl, combine tempura mix, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in slaw mix and edamame.

  4. 4

    Cook the Pancake

    Line a plate with paper towel. Return pan used to cook tuna to medium heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Test oil temperature by adding a drop of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. Carefully add pancake batter to hot oil and gently flatten into a thin pancake. Cook undisturbed until crisp and browned, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove pancake to towel-lined plate. Cut into wedges.
